We first heard about Team Evil when Stand With Us contacted us about an attack on EUJS's website. The attack has caused some concern coming right before an EUJS conference.
After finding out what happened (and who team evil were) we passed this information to EUJS. Being one site out of hundreds targetted is not quite as bad as being specifically targetted.
European Jewish Students' announcements on the address eujs.org were replaced by an image depicting a burning Israeli flag and an accompanying hate text

The website of the European Union of Jewish Students’ website, where the organization publishes daily briefings in solidarity with of Israel , was defaced by anti-Israel Arab hackers earlier this week.
EUJS announcements on the address eujs.org were replaced by an image depicting a burning Israeli flag and an accompanying text that read, ‘!!! Own3d by Team-Evil Arab Hackerz!!!, Israel Go to Hell."
Later on, a song “Allah Ouhakbar,” (translated from Arabic as G-d is great), appeared on the site, followed by a virus that collapsed the entire external server.
Despite the infiltration, chair of EUJS Olga Israel appeared defiant.
“The European Union of Jewish Students will not be intimidated by this cyber-terrorism or any other action of this kind,” she said. “It is fitting that this occurred as our team in Brussels attended a pro-Israel demonstration organized by the Belgian Jewish community.
“We are all the more determined to continue our current campaign. EUJS will keep supporting Israel’s right to defend itself, its right to exist and its people.”
Israel said she was outraged that hackers had targeted EUJS stressed that the organization will not be silenced in its efforts to support Israel. “Israel has the right to defend itself, its existence and its people,” she said.
EUJS is not the first organization to be targeted in this kind of attack. In July, many high profile Israeli companies such as Bank Hapoalim and Citroen Israel, also found that their websites had been replaced by messages from the so-called ‘Team Evil’, which claims to be based in Morocco.
EUJS advised all organizations with online connections to Israel to back up their servers and check their system security.
The Brussels-based European Union of Jewish Students is made up of student leaders from across the continent.
Its annual programming includes the Summer University, a variety of political, interfaith and educational seminars all over Europe and study sessions at the European Youth Centre. It is the only elected voice of European Jewish youth at the European level and at the European Youth Forum.
